Cares Council Cares Initiative
Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes it feels like we are alone in this world and everything seems so difficult no matter how hard we try to keep it together. We understand and can totally relate! That is why, our new initiative, “St. Andrew Council Cares” is there to help your family during difficult times.
The goal of Council Cares is to be another source available for support for families during challenging moments.
We are looking for volunteers to help us in this initiative to build a network of caring angels. If you are interested in making yourself available to this initiative, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
For those nights you want something different for dinner that your children will actually eat, try this meatloaf, a twist on a classic. This recipe serves a hungry family of 4-6!
1lb ground beef (I prefer extra lean)
½ cup finely chopped onions
½ cup bread crumbs
½ cup salsa (you choose the level of heat)
1 tbs nacho seasoning (or one packet of taco mix)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (nacho mix or mozza cheddar)
Sour cream optional for the side
Heat oven to 3500 F. Mix the ground beef, onions, egg, bread crumbs, salsa, nacho seasoning and one cup of the cheese. Press into a loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray. Make a dent in the center of the loaf. Bake approximately 45 minutes until the meatloaf is done (1600 F). Top with remaining cheese (if you want, add some more salsa), and bake a few more minutes until the cheese has melted. Serve with sour cream on the side.
